Near-reversal without enormous effort
by Helen de Castro
Since being diagnosed with osteopenia a few years ago, my hips have returned almost to normal and my lumbar spine (especially 4th vertebra) has improved 2,9% from 2006 to 2008, and 2,6% since 2008.
Treatment has been relatively painless: 2-4 gym sessions a week (lots of yoga, some conditioning, some machines), Protelos and Calcium+Vit D (when I remember). I manage a tissue paper mill and am very active. I will maitain Protelos for one more year, and hope by then to have returned to the green zone on the charts.
